Our Capital Markets practice is singled out for its depth and ability to provide legal advice on even the most complex debt and equity transactions and securitisation deals. Our team has been at the forefront of the most innovative capital markets transactions in Malta as well as a driver for innovation in their regulation, reporting and taxation.

Debt Capital Markets

Our experience is broad-ranging, from raising funds for Maltese state bodies in U.S. markets, exchangeable issues for multinational corporations, domestic private placements and offers to the public for Maltese financial institutions to representation on asset-backed commercial paper programmes.

The capital markets team at GANADO is singled out by its ability to draw on considerable resources elsewhere in the firm, particularly in the tax, corporate, regulatory and derivatives areas.  Similarly, our involvement in drafting much of the country’s financial services legislation and representation of supra-national and regulatory and trade bodies on Maltese issues, gives us an unparalleled perspective on the market’s legal landscape.

Teamwork is emphasised in every aspect of our firm’s culture: combined with experience of delivering a service to the standard expected in the world’s major financial centres, we are able to assist in managing even the most complex transactions to close on time.

Equity Capital Markets

We recognise that an equity offering, perhaps more than any other kind of transaction, is highly time sensitive, complex and multi-faceted.  Accordingly, effective project management is a key element of our delivery.  Our group of capital markets lawyers prides itself on meticulous planning and organisation as well the flexibility and sensitivity to bring the right level resources to bear at the right time. We have managed projects where the transaction team has comprised from anything between one and 20 fee earners in the space of 48 hours.

Another priority in equity capital markets is maintaining strong working relationships with law and accountancy firms representing clients overseas. We strive to ensure that our team properly recognises its role in a larger international pool of advisers, whether on a particular transaction or garnering important know how from abroad.  In this way we hope to keep our standards at a truly international level.
